Sponsor Love

crochet jewelry free pattern - chain necklace

Have you been following the Twisted and Twirled MCAL and MKAL? It’s a really cool opportunity to crochet or knit along with a series of instant gratification crochet jewelry patterns that celebrate twistiness. Crochet designer Jessie at Home says of this one, the third in the crochet series, “It has 6 full twists in it, creating a beautiful spiral of color. The Chain Slip necklace can be worked up in no time with less than 50 yards of sport weight yarn.” It’s made of just slip stitches and chain stitches.

Did you know Jessie has more than 130 free crochet patterns?
